I spotted them from a mile away but tucked under the shelf above, all I could see was the gold stud detail - they looked quite normal. I pulled them from the shelf to reveal this odd faux-fur purpley leopard print...strange. I stood looking at them in awe before deciding they were ugly and moving on. After a quick lap around the shop, I found my eyes kept wandering back to them and I just had to try them on. After finding them to be a perfect fit, I decided they were just so unusual I had to have them, ugly or not. When I posted a picture on Instagram, everyone seemed to be as undecided as I was.
The second item was this dress with green pleated skirt. I picked this up in Shelter in Edinburgh during a two night break this week. It was the first thing I saw when I walked into the shop and as with the shoes, stood staring at it for a good few seconds trying to make up my mind about it! Josh referred to it as a '70s curtain' and looked horrified that I was even considering it. I have to say, I really love it now. It's just so unusual!
So what do you think of my ugly items? Have you ever bought something that's so ugly it's almost become attractive?!
I think I'm on for a decent haul on Monday when I will be taking my first trip to Southport in years. The town used to be a charity shop heaven - I can't wait!
